Lagos State government has limited admission to its model colleges to only primary six pupils.

The state government emphasized that it is only the primary six students in both public and private schools who are qualified to sit for the forthcoming entrance examination into its various model colleges and upgraded secondary schools in the state.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Director, Lagos State Examinations Board, Mr Orunsolu Adebayo, on Tuesday March 14, 2023.

According to the statement, the government also stated that the registration and payment for the examination and for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) otherwise known as junior WAEC for the JSS3 students is strictly online.

While explaining further, Adebayo stated that the online mode of registration and payment for the two examinations is to conform to the state government policy at ensuring seamless and stress-free access to government services in the state.

He explained that those who are registering or paying for the examinations would not need to come physically to the examination board office for the purpose as they can do so anywhere there is access to the internet.

Explaining the process, Orunsolu said each school with applicants would need to log into a dedicated, portal and create an account to generate a unique identity number (ID) and Personalized Identification Number (PIN).

He said, “The process is seamless but it requires that schools follow the guidelines and procedures strictly as stated on the portal.”

While stating that the registration has since commenced and that late registration would attract a penalty after expiration, he noted that schools with candidates with special needs such as visually impaired and albinos, among others should inform the board officially to facilitate adequate preparations for them ahead of the examinations.

He, however, emphasized that those who are not eligible should not bother to register for the examination as they will not be allowed to sit for both examinations as applicable.
